Women getting heart beat taking by medical professional

Colon cancer is the second most common cause of cancer death. A nationwide study using BMI and cancer incidence data from the US Cancer Statistics database estimated that each year people ages 30 and older, about 37,670 new cancer cases in men and 74,690 new cancer cases in women were due to excess body weight (overweight, obesity, or severe obesity). The best way to decrease any risk is to work on those factors that you have control over like lifestyle, and weight.
